Halo 4 multiplayer guide


Unlike the first two maps, Complex opens gameplay up for some vehicular combat. Each team has there own “base” that hosts a number of goodies, both weapons and vehicles alike, but much the action goes down in a central bridge that extends to another scientific facility. Here, ranged weapons are almost a must, and headshots mean life or death, and the spilling of brains.

Power Weapons

Sniper Rifle x 2
The two snipers also rest at each team’s initial spawn points. Both are onto of buildings, viewable from the ground.

The scattershot can be found behind the energy sword’s resting place, on ground level in the middle of the map.

Energy Sword
The energy sword rests on a platform near the scientific facility located in the middle of the map.

Other Weapons

Random Drop Weapons


Ghost x 2
Both Ghosts can be spotted at each team’s initial spawn points. There’s one at one end, and the second at the other end.

Mongoose x 3

Gameplay Tips

Complex almost requires you to equip yourself with some sort of rifle. Those that can control the battle rifle’s three round burst should certainly go with that as it can counteract some opponents who may be equipped with an assault rifle. If you’re not in that category, I suggest equipping the DMR, as it offers a more precise shot and has range similar to the sniper rifle. If you’re not supplied with an assault rifle, or at least carrying a close-quarters weapon, though, you’ll want to stay away from the scientific facility as it hoists some epic battles. You can still shoot at foes standing on the bridge, so you don’t lose out on too much when carrying a rifle. Complex is also a great map in that any ability can be used to maximum success, depending on which weapon you’re equipped with.

    "Though Adrift is similar is scope to Abandon" I believe you mean "similar in scope"

    Hello common984 It's nice to see such good manners on a message board so I'll go easy on you. This is, not I know this can be confusing if you are new to the internet but there are some helpful hints. The address bar (that white one at the top of your screen) should tell you where you are as well the word "GamesRadar" printed pretty much everywhere. Another hint is what the website is presenting. In this case it's games, games, GAMES! Not suspicious bargins, missed deliveries, EMPTY BANK ACCOUNTS! That would be the website you erroreously welcomed us to. I Know you meant but I have to stress this. We don't want users accidently going to that website. It's full of spyware and dubious trading. Be careful, yourself. Anyways, welcome to and thank you for being so friendly.

    Can you sell me pogo-blades? No? Then fuck off!

    I think your friend is lying to you. I'd keep an eye on your wallet, if I were you.

    So much spam o3o

    That's very good and well Mr. Steinlage, but you still haven't thought the most important factor of Halo: how to present ourselves to the online community. What racist comments do I use to show off my superiority? How should I phrase my death threats if somebody gets a lucky shot on me? How long should I stalk their accounts? And what is the best way to quickly teabag a downed player whilst making homophobic remarks without a sense of irony?

    You know, I probably should have included that! I personally like the "I'M GOING TO HACK YOUR ACCOUNT" threats that I regularly receive!
